Mamas Gun – I Need A Win

Singer-songwriter and producer Andy Platts is both the front man of Mamas Gun and the ‘young gun’ in Young Gun Silver Fox. On Mamas Gun’s fourth album Golden Days (out on 23 February), the sound of the two projects connects better than ever before, undoubtedly appealing to both bands’ audiences. Throughout the record (yes, it’ll also be released on vinyl), Mamas Gun’s funky soul sound merges seamlessly with the west coast influences in Young Gun Silver Fox’s music.

One of the reasons may be, that ‘silver fox’ Shawn Lee lends a helping hand, alongside Andy Ross and Dominic Glover of horn section the Dap-Kings and songwriters Connor Reeves (Tina Turner, Joss Stone, Joe Cocker) and Christopher Braide (Sia, Lana Del Rey, Paloma Faith).

The whole album is an analog recording, and sounds like a classic soul/R&B album with a strong Motown feel to it. I Need A Win is the set’s first single.
